I am pleased to be able to comment on (and commend) Voddie Baucham’s new book, What He Must Be If He Wants to Marry My Daughter. In his introduction, Baucham rightly links family issues to reformation and revival. For far too long, we have left theology to the theology wonks and relationships to the relational gurus. Different kinds of people gravitate to different parts of the bookstore, to each his own. But we desperately need biblically informed men who know how to love everyone seated around their dining room table.
Baucham begins where we have to begin — the first chapter is on recovering a multigenerational vision. We don’t need any more designer families; we need generations that intend to follow Jesus Christ. At any rate, this book looks really promising so check it out.
